Egypt: Where is the Worldwide Support for Christians From Christians?


Have you been following the tragedy that is Egypt? Are you paying attention to the Christians who are being attacked, their churches burned and some of their clergy targeted for assault?

Where is the worldwide support for Christians from Christians? Nuns are paraded in the street like hostages. Churches have been burned.

And how about this: Islamists splashed red graffiti on the homes of Christians and their churches, alerting terrorists where to strike. Doesn't this remind you of Exodus, where Jews put blood on their door posts so the angel of death would pass over them? It's the reverse in modern Egypt. The red graffiti is placed on the structures to harm or kill those inside.

Our Jewish friends speak out when one of their own is persecuted and we see every day how Muslims react to perceived or actual slights. Where are the Christians in support of their brethren in Egypt? The least that should be done is to pray for them. The least, but not enough.
